A comparative study of the oldest to the youngest religion.
This book contains a world of knowledge brought to us by Judaism and Sikhism. Although their origins are separated by generations of time, their commalities are remarkable. While advocating for the importance and power of prayer, these religions teach us that God is vast and unfathomable. As these two faiths have taught me that service to humanity is service to God, I offer this comparative study to you in hopes that you may move forward and do the same.
As per Sikh customs/traditions as governed by the religious-spiritual Diktat of the Gurus, woman and man undertake to tie the nuptial-knot according to the prescribed code-of-conduct. They must reciprocate love and understanding, while taking due care to recognize each other’s uniqueness, thereby ensuring equality (as equals, and as life-partners). This shall eliminate any occurrence of conflict on the basis of a perceived threat to either’s identity. Harmony shall prevail, and all crisis situations shall be dealt with, in a spirit of compromise and commitment, keeping divorce at bay. The ascending divorce-rate in the Western society and culture, is attributable to the fact that the institution of marriage is considered to be no more than a legal contract, that can be nullified, with the stroke of the pens of the two parties and a Judge. Both must strive to achieve a state of camaraderie on all planes: emotional, physical, financial, intellectual, and spiritual. Celibacy has been repudiated in the strongest terms, for it is well nigh impossible to banish the thought of sexual-union.
